This flu season is approaching and it is time to make an appointment for your child’s flu vaccine. We are recommending that all children 6 months and older receive a vaccination as soon as possible. Vaccines will be available the first week of September. It is especially important with the COVID 19 virus being active at the same time and presenting with the same symptoms.
If your child has missed their yearly preventive examination please contact the office so we can get this scheduled at the same time. It is very important to get this yearly, even though your child seems healthy. This allows your child to be examined for any hidden health concerns and evaluated for growth and development for his age.
With the winter illnesses approaching, we will be very strict about our appointment scheduling policy. If you make an appointment and fail to cancel within the 24 hour period, you will be charged a no show fee of $45.00. If this occurs 3 times within a annual period, you may be asked to find another physician as your primary care provider. We pride ourselves in keeping the waiting time to 30 minutes, so you must arrive at your appointment timely and cancel properly, so all patients can be seen when needed. We thank you in advance, especially within this busy time of year.
Thank you for allowing PHC to care for your family!
